Nov 26, 2015 - We wish Dennis and Bert Bon voyage

we returned to Barcelona for one night on Sunday. Dennis and Bert headed to the airport early Monday morning for a return to key west, and we had an afternoon flight to Nice, so this was our Bon voyage evening. We were back in Barcelona and checked back into our hotel by 5:00 so we had time for a final ramble through the old quarter before a return for a fabulous dinner at Casalolea. We are agreed that this could be the best place to eat in Barcelona. The address is carrer Sant pere mes alt, 49. We continued our final ramble after dinner...

Nov 18, 2015 - Barcelona with Dennis and Bert

Even though it is out of chronological order, I need to insert a mention of the horrible events in Paris, Beirut and Kenya last week. We see the increase of border control, military and police patrols everywhere and worry that these horrible attacks will be used to justify intolerance and escalation of violent retribution. We will continue to treasure each day. Friday November 6th we were up early headed via TGV train to Barcelona. Prior to our departure for Europe, we made a plan to meet key west friends, Dennis and Bert in their favorite...

Nov 11, 2015 - St Thomas & Miami.....in five minutes or less...

Every morning Slick and I get up at the crack of noon and walk 3 miles around the deck. 5 1/2 laps makes a mile. Here's the catch. They swab the deck here at 6am. We really go out a 7 am. The deck is still wet. Here is the visual....Slick, whose hearing is a bit of is in the lead because he says he walks too fast. Imagine that! So we are crawling at a snails pace around the slippery deck while the waves are tossing us back and forth across the three foot wide walking path. Slick, who also has a bit of a balance problem AND a continual...

Nov 8, 2015 - The Boat

Just arrived in St Thomas and found a hot spot for the Internet! This is going to be short and sweet. Here is our itinerary on the boat so far.... Eat, nap, eat, dance, eat, sleep, repeat.... Fabulous weather. No little ones. Lots of dentures and bad karaoke. Many, many days at sea, but we have had terrific entertainment....except for karaoke...enough said. Only here until 5. Found a spot to sit. Hot and loving it! Drop a note from Miami in two days! Oh! Slick is sitting on the beach in a red Speedo. Europeans call a Speedo a "snugglie."...

Nov 4, 2015 - Day trip to Montserrat (name means serrated mountain)

Today we headed out to Montserrat, a multi peaked mountain north west of Barcelona. To reach it we took the metro,followed by a regional train ride of about an hour, then a cable car up the mountain, followed by a funicular ride further up the mountain. This is the starting point for a series of mountain hikes which are not too strenuous and offer great views of the surrounding countryside. When we got off the cable car ride, which had travelled very quickly and only took 5 minutes, we were above some low lying clouds. The clouds soon...

Nov 2, 2015 - Antoni Gaudi's works in Barcelona

La Sagrada Familia basilica is referred to as Antoni Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece. He was working on it at the time of his death, when he was hit by a tram crossing a street in Barcelona, in 1826. It is still under construction and when we visited this morning there were lots of workmen on site and the sound of hammering and power tools reverberating throughout the building. Another of Gaudi's works is Park Guell a Unesco world heritage site on the outskirts of the city.It is a large park set high on a hill with sweeping views of...

Nov 2, 2015 - Pickpockets in Barcelona

On our first day in Barcelona we had been warned that the city is the second in Europe for the number of pickpockets (with Prauge taking first place). Unfortunately Peter got to experience this first hand yesterday afternoon. We were at a metro station about to board a train when a woman pushed close to him which he thought was strange as there was not a big crowd. As we boarded she pushed close again and he felt her hand go into his side pocket where he had a camera. He quickly pushed her away and shouted at her to which she made a half...

Nov 1, 2015 - Concert de Halloween

Last night we visited the beautiful concert hall Palau De La Musica Orfeo Catala. The building, completed in 1902, is breathtaking with intricately detailed stained glass and sculptures. The concert we saw was Concert de Halloween, a performance by organist Juan de la Rubla of music to accompany the silent film Nosferatu. Nosferatu is a 1922 silent horror film made in Germany, an unauthorised adaption of Dracula. A huge screen was set up to view the movie with the organist taking centre stage in front of it and playing with dramatic effect...

Oct 30, 2015 - Barcelona

We have left the Basque region and Atlantic Ocean in North Eastern Spain and arrived at Barcelona, the capital of the Catalonia region on the Mediterrean Sea. Yesterday we took a city tour learning about some of the city's interesting history before strolling down to the beach and having a general look around. One thing that is immediately obvious is the number of motorcycles in the city, apparently the most per capita for any European city, including Rome. Another is the Catalan independence flag which is hanging from many apartments and...

Oct 29, 2015 - Goodbye, Barcelona!

Spent the day just roaming around the city. There are a lot of English people here. So much so that Everytime we stopped to rest or have a bite to eat, (pretty often,) Slick would break into his rendition of Peppa Pig. One British woman took offense calling him a flagrant fake. He yells back, "Not so, my dear Fellow Brit! Want to share some fish and chips so that I might prove what a British prude I am?" She laughed right out loud and we were back on good terms. Slick joined in with her laughter and they both snorted just like Peppa Pig....
